Squash, bacon, onions and tomatoes combine for a soul-satisfying winter dinner.

Ingredients

1  
squash, delicata
   
salt
2 tablespoons
oil, sunflower
2 slices
bacon
1  
onion
2  
tomato
   
black pepper
1/4 cup
parsley

Instructions

Slice delicata squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Slice into 1/2-inch cubes (do not peel). Meanwhile, heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add bacon and onion. Cook for 10 minutes, until tender, then add tomatoes. Cook for about 7 minutes, or until the tomatoes start to soften. Add the delicata squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender and the sauce is thick. Season with freshly-ground black pepper and fresh parsley. Taste for salt and adjust, as needed.

Serve as a side dish, or as an entree with couscous, pasta, or crusty bread rubbed with garlic and briefly toasted.
